Please remove the geforce fx5500 video card. Blow out the AGP slot with some canned air. Re-seat the video card & make sure you install it with even pressure (front to back) with slight rocking motion untill the card is completly seated. Try running the system again. ( I'm thinking the card was not completly seated).

If your system freezes again re-set your cmos / bios. In your user manual pg. 2.
Boot to the bios & re-setup all your settings. Save & exit.
If your PC still freezes, try another AGP card because the 5500 seem to be defective.

So hate giving out bad news........

How to install fx5500 to intel d915gag mother board

1) Turn the computer on. After Windows has fully loaded, install the Installation Disk that comes with the Nvidia GeForce FX5500 graphics card, into the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

The disk has the Drivers, and Nvidia Control Panel.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.
Windows XP is the O/S.
The Nvidia GeForce FX5500 is the device.

Don't have the disk?

Download AND install.

[After you click on Download, a small window will come up on the right -
Opening 175.19_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_whql.exe

Click on Save File.
Another small window will open on the left. Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
At the bottom of the next three small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
Now restart the computer.

Windows will NOT use these drivers until the graphics card is installed, so don't worry about messing the graphics up.

Because when a device is installed, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.
If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic, one size fits all drivers.

This = No.
This is why you want THE drivers installed first, THEN physically install the graphics card ]

2) Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go. Do this procedure two more times. (Drains the residual power)

3) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components of a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on the computer.

Computer ON a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Don't follow Anti-Static Precautions, may as well get ready to use your motherboard for a Frisbee, or a doorstop.

4) There is a Locking Arm on the PCI-Express x16 slot. It looks as though you press down to unlock.


Gently pull up a little, as you push the graphics card Straight down into the PCI-Express x16 slot.

5) Be SURE to connect the monitor cable to the graphics card, and not back into the I/O area. (Motherboard)

Please show much higher compatible microprocessors

As per my concern if u want to replace & ugrade all the parts then u take a NVIDIA motherboard only because , the fx5500 videocard is of NVIDIA geforce company only thats why it will suit the motherboard itself & also nvidia provides 256MB onboard videocard so if u keep fx5500 videocard free it will be all right
Let me know is this helpful to u or not

Processor load on biostar m/b

IT seems no problem with your specification, but only one thing less in this criteria. What inch does your monitor? This must be match with the specification of your VGA Card, The more resolution you can get the best performance of this VGA card you can achieve, try to higher the resolution of your monitor , don't only use 1024 x 768 , but try another higher resolution. The VGA itself cannot reduce the system perfomance, because your vga card has GPU (This VGA card has his own processor and memory) just like mini computer inside your main computer.Hope this things can solve your problem, don't forget to vote
